Sebastião Salgado: The Life Beyond the Photograph

New York | 26 September - 12 October

This autumn, Sotheby’s will collaborate with the pioneering artist and environmentalist Sebastião Salgado on a curated selling exhibition titled Magnum Opus. Curated by Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado, this exhibition showcases fifty photographs from major projects that Sebastião Salgado carried out during almost five decades of exploring the planet. 100% of the proceeds will be benefiting the critical reforestation operations of Instituto Terra, the acclaimed Brazilian conservation nonprofit co-founded in 1998 by the artist and Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado.

The Selling Exhibition will be on view on the 2nd floor of Sotheby's between 26 September - 12 October 2022.


Also being featured this month is the first collection of NFTs offered by Sebastião Salgado which will be open 12 October 2022. Sebastião Salgado: Amazônia is the most significant collection of NFTs by a living photographer. It comprises Tree of Life, a unique 1-of-1 NFT, and a limited edition of 5,000.
